Fortune 1000 Organizations Streamline IT Administration Tasks with Data Palette's AJAX Web Based Console

Stratavia Introduces Data Palette 5.0 for Data Center Automation

Stratavia announced the availability of its latest release, Data Palette 5.0. This new version introduces a groundbreaking AJAX-based user interface design, providing a rich user experience for centralized global IT administration. It also features advances in standardizing and automating complex, error prone tasks that traditionally require days, of manual intervention and oversight.

“Consider the average data center network – its comprised of nearly 1000 servers and growing 30 percent per year; they’re highly heterogeneous and support over 5000 desktops for up to 7000 employees,” said Andi Mann, research director, Enterprise Management Associates. “Customers are concerned with siloed approaches to data center automation. Building a centralized, web-based console for global coordination and standardization can greatly reduce inconsistencies. We predict data automation solutions that address this will deliver substantial benefits.” 

Data Palette is Stratavia’s patent-pending platform that automates complex, manually intensive but repetitive IT administration tasks. It has been recognized for its approach to “intelligent” run book automation, having evolved from a managed service operation, where it served as the database automation platform for over 40 customers. This latest version includes those database automation capabilities and provides further innovations in the areas of:

  • Policy Driven Automation, to further standardize and streamline IT administration tasks
  • Automated Server Provisioning for physical and virtual Linux, Windows and Solaris environments
  • Automated Virtualization Management 
  • Centralized Web-based Administration that allows users to create standard operating procedures through an intuitive “digital whiteboard”
  • Leveraging information about the environment in which it resides
  • Dynamically expand, virtualize and allocate server and storage space when needed
  • Automatically trigger resolution policies with no manual intervention
  • Administer and track upgrades and configurations
  • Forensically report on database and IT operations for auditing and analysis
  • Deploy patches to prevent security threats and ensure optimal performance
  • Support adherence to the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) framework of best practices

“Data Palette 5.0 is designed for organizations with globally distributed data center operations running a heterogeneous universe of applications and databases,” said Thor Culverhouse, CEO, Stratavia. “Given this model, it is no longer possible for large IT organizations to manage servers individually, no matter what level of standardization and asset tracking exists. With Data Palette’s introduction of policy-driven automation, Data Palette dramatically streamlines operations and lowers operating costs, by as much as 80 percent.”
